Ocotber 25, 2017: It’s the 24th Annual Scholarship Dessert Auction!
It’s time to dig deep and give to Scholarships – it’s the Seattle Chapter’s Scholarship Dessert Auction Extravaganza! This is our 24th annual dessert auction, the one time each year that we ask you to support future accountants by giving to our Scholarship fund. No matter the amount, wouldn’t it be great if every single member gave something to AFWA Seattle Scholarships this year?
The Seattle Chapter of the AFWA has two 501(c)(3) scholarship funds. The original fund is supported by annual donations and by the investment earnings of a second, permanent endowment fund. You may donate to either or both of these funds. Each school year the chapter awards up to four scholarships totaling approximately $15,000, and since the inception of the fund in 1962, scholarship awards have totaled over $350,000!
The bidding starts at 5:30 on THREE Silent Auction tables, full of delectable home-made desserts, bakery goodies, and even lots of non-dessert items such as wine, or perhaps some home-made crafts. If you would like to donate an auction item, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know, and we will send a link to the online sign-up sheet.
Dinner is at 6:30, while the Silent Auction tables close and the winners are announced.
The Live Auction starts at 7:30 – and each table has a chance to win at least one gorgeous cake! More fun ensues as the tables “re-sell” extra slices to raise even more money for Scholarships.
Remember: most desserts can be frozen and brought out for the holidays!
